I hope everyone enjoys a nice Thanksgiving with family or friends. Even if you spend Thanksgiving alone this year, I hope it is good one.
I feel blessed and have a lot to be thankful for, my health, a warm place to live, clothes to wear, food on my table, family and friends, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, a testimony of His divinity, knowing that He loves everyone of us regardless of our situations, knowing we are never really alone because He is there, and knowing that all He wants is for us to repent as often as we need and to not give up trying to get it right and to follow him because he never gives up on us.
Please keep those in your prayers who do not have a place to live and less than the basics this winter. I challenge you to make a list of those things you have that you are thankful for and and try to add one more thing each day that you have thought of for the next 5 days and see if you can see more than you thought you had. You might also, if you have the means, make a small donation of money or clothing items to your local homeless shelter, or donate time to a local soup kitchen to help feed those who have less than you for whatever reason. Gratitude is always an uplift, especially in hard times.
Hope everyone is having a Happy Thanksgiving Day. My thoughts and prayers are going out to those who suffered devastating losses in the California fires :(, and all those who had no family to celebrate with. My heart is breaking for them.
I may not have much according to the world, but I have enough. I have my faith, my family, a warm place to live, food on my table and clothes on my back. I even have some things that I wanted, a spinning wheel (that was given to me – could not afford to buy one), my knitting needles, some yarn to knit and fiber to spin, a computer (a gift from my dad). I have an older car that allows me to get around in town and a working sewing machine I’ve had for about 20 years, that allows me to do some sewing (repairs and gifts). I can not complain because there are others who have less. I’m grateful for the things the Lord has provided for me. I wasn’t always grateful because I saw the things others had, but as I saw the lack and needs of others who had less than I did, I began thanking our Father in Heaven for those things I had neglected to recognize as blessings in my life. It has given me a sense of peace and comfort to see and recognize all the Lord has blessed me with. I hope you find things to be grateful for too even tho there is so much strife and drama in the world, there are things in our lives that are blessings and tender mercies. Sharing what we have is a blessing to others, not only lifting them but us as well. I hope we can all find ways to bless others’ lives.
Happy Thanksgiving 🙂
